Abstract
On November 9, 2002, a 32-year-old male farmer died after being kicked in the chest and head by a horse. He was alone in the pen with four horses while currying one of the horses in a poorly lit area of the barn. The horse he was currying, had injured both back legs in a fence. When the victim failed to return to the house within an hour, the victimís wife found him and called 911. The EMS arrived and performed CPR while transporting the victim to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The FACE investigators concluded that to help prevent similar occurrences, farmers should: 1. Observe safety precautions with animals. 2. Perform duties in well-lit areas.
